"Pastel Goodness" at "The Shabby Tea Room"

Happy Bright Sunshiny Morning To You All!!!

This week at "The Shabby Tea Room" the challenge is "Pastel Goodness"
I am hosting the challenge this week and I chose the lovely inspiration photo below
and to use pastel colors, polka dots and flowers!!

Our sponsor this week is "Creations by AR".  I am using their beautiful cut file
"Lovely Cart".  It went together so easy and I used the PDF file as I don't have
a Silhouette for the SVG file..  I bet you can't even tell it was "hand cut" can you??

I used SU Lavender Lace Card stock and Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments for my cart.
The daffodils were handmade using a Cottage Cutz die and colored with PanPastels
that can be purchased from Classy Cards 'n Such.

My sweet little girl is "Sophie" from Paper Sweeties.
I paper pieced her clothes using the "Mahola" boutique set.
I used a bit of pompom ribbon trim on both side of the cart top,
made a yellow ribbon flower 
and added ribbon trim around the base of the cart!!
All the other "bits and baubles" were from my "stash" of "stuff"!!

So head on over to "The Shabby Tea Room" and see what my Shabby Tea Room
teammates have created....lots of gorgeous projects to peek at!!
While there, why not join in with us this week...we would love to have you!!
